Support is normally the area where free antivirus fall behind the more expensive solutions, luckily this isn’t the case with PC Protect. As part of the package, you have access to live chat support with experts from the company. This is on top of the in-depth guides supplied on how to install, uninstall and use the product. Their chat support is great, I was connected to an agent within seconds and, whilst I can’t guarantee that every agent is extremely helpful, my experience with the company rep was brilliant. If you had any issue with the technical side of the product or with billing, you can be confident that the chat support is more than sufficient enough to resolve it.
